Invitation


Well, OK, hello, everybody, I'm back Blogging again... after some minor distractions like getting married and buying a house and honeymooning overseas, class reunions, receptions, etc etc. Now that those little distractions are out of the way, I'm back on it again... hopefully at a slightly more relaxed pace.

This image, which was our wedding invitation, was initially based on a WWII vintage movie poster. This image first started as a sketch on paper, then the final artwork was created entirely in Photoshop with probably 40-45 layers. Painted with a Cintiq tablet. I found it best to not think about how to get the old lithograph style in the painting.... I had thought about it for quite a while when I was researching old posters and eventually I just started one night (because our deadline was fast approaching) and never really thought about the litho element of the look. It helps me to be in a rush because I don't waste time overthinking or second guessing anything. It was a fun project because it came together pretty fast once I started painting.
